Galerie Monocle opened two weeks ago in Brescia, I discovered it only yesterday and I'm already in love with it.

ON 24 DECEMBER IT WILL BE GREAT BEING AT
Gomma Kiss-Mas!

met on 19 december

This is Clo, at Clo and Marchino's, Milano

The "before going out with the night in our hands" moment is always on of the best.
Mostly if it's the last night in 2008 you are spending with this friend.
Mostly if this friend acted as an artist for one day and gives you a totally unexpected watercolour.
Mostly if this friend is ready to get her rocks off!


HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO

finally also my little roommate is 21!

met on 17 december

These are Lorenzo, me and Marchino, cafeteria, Milano

Everybody bought a H&M bonnet to face the cold winter. Placing side by side the green one, the white one and the red one, you can also form the italian flag.

This happens when you study too much.


IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

Carlo Caracciolo, died on 15 december 2008 at the age of 83

met on 7 december

This is Nicola, Darsena, Milano

How can I wander Milan streets with a brother who always has to make everybody fool?
Asking for stupid and nonexistent magazines at the Central Station's newspaper kiosk, driving Zara's shop boys crazy, and so on.
His company also brought me a lot of fortune, I had an exam the day after he went away and it went great!

met on 3rd december

These are Ross and Angelo, piazza Duomo, Milano

I was walking in via Torino with Angelo when we met him: insisting, insisting and again insisting on him joining us, he finally became part of our heavy open-bar aperitif at 55DSL temporarT shop opening.


This is Chiara, Neon Pub, Milano

Getting out of 55DSL, I "found" some Bacardi Cola cans in my pockets. This was my present for Chiara and Stella, that had a reading yesterday night at Neon Pub. Great girls, loved you!







This is Betty, Neon Pub, Milano

How the fuck a plastic guitar for children arrived in her hands yesterday night?! I really have no idea.



IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING


Debbie Harry
Angelo gave me his iPod because I had to come back home alone, but I was not able using an iPod. He set the volume and the song: Heart of Glass + maximum volume = people turned their faces looking at me. When I entered home I asked my housemate to switch it off.

met on 2nd december

These are Davide, Paolo, Filippo and Marchino, via Ripamonti, Milano

Product management teamwork: evolution of single-dose products due to the increase of single-families. It was very cold, absolutely cold, and I was with them out of Esselunga to interview single consumers. After doing this for two hours, I came back home with totally icy feet.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

Giovanni Rana in his Fiat 500

met on 29 november

These are Eros and Flavia, Latte Più, Brescia

When it's cold my camera performs very bad focalization, and they look like angels! Happy birthday to Eros, Flavia's boyfriend and great kisser (don't personally know it, but i trust her), but not great as Fabri! Uahahahaahahahah!





IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

met on 26 november

This is Antonella, Bar Cuore, Milano

People from Arezzo. Antonella is against Facebook because the day after having party you find there pics tagged with your name and surname showing you in embarrassing poses.
"I know a boy called Riccardo.. he lives in one of the main Arezzo streets.." "via Masaccio?" "right! he lives in via Masaccio!" "He's a cook now!"
So, through her I said Hello to Riccardo, who lives in via Masaccio in Arezzo and now works as a cook.

met on 24 november

This is Rob, Università Bocconi, Milano

"Hey look! I've just found a tie in my bag!"
A not at all common boy from Arluno that on friday night (/saturday morning) jumps with his face into a heaps of leaves shouting "STOMALEEE! A LEAVES-MADE BED! SHOULD I JUMP INTO IT?".
ecco rob, sputtanato anche qua!

met on 19 november

This are Raffaello and Guido, Bar Cuore, Milano

As luck would have it, Sara and I met them out of Cuore on a weird wednesday night. Raffaello saved my night. Had a good chat with them and found out that Guido, better known as Duty Gorn, is an artist I knew only by name.
What are you waiting for? Take a stroll around porta Genova, go to via Orseolo 7 and take a look at his works!

These are Amanda and Matteo, really don't know where, Milano

Amanda the amazing spanish girl and Matteo the crazy Sara's brother. Great time with them, inventing spanish words to talk with Amanda, while another friend was spending his time shouting with a megaphone bought in the street.

met on 13 november

These are Stella and Rasputin, casa Teodosio, Milano

Betty and Stella's house is always full of surprises: yesterday night Rasputin the hamster, the tiny and shy Rasputin found in a trash can that spends his evenings alone in the kitchen because he can't stand smoke.
Here in Stella's hands, Stella the musician with her 4 or 5 or 6 bands, with her amazing knowledge of music, Stella that yesterday was planning to go to Sonar in Barcelona because "you should go there before you are thirty".
I was almost forgetting the second "casa Teodosio"'s surprise, our table cloth for the dinner (Betty design):
oh yes, old newspapers table-cloth! Have fun soiling it, don't have to wash, just turn the page!






IT HAS BEEN GREAT EATING
everything, but here is the dessert: honey pudding with blackberries

met on 12 november

This is Sara, Magazzini Generali, Milano

Two places, same person, same scene:
2006 Mykonos - I didn't know she was there, 6 am dancing at Cavo Paradiso, I saw her in the crowd, my friend Sara, unable to talk, but able to shout "AAAAAHHHH". Same thing for me.
2008 Milano - Just entered in the club I saw her walking alone. "Sara?" "AAAAAAHHHH"

met on 11 november

This is Paul, Colonne di San Lorenzo, Milano

How funny can be doing teawork for the Design Workshop at Colonne?! So much funny if you meet Paul there!!
Paul, Milano missed you so much! Arrived last friday, the party week started!
Despite the party week, today, mostly thanks to him, our design management team had great success:

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

Tom Dickson, the Blendtec founder

met on 10 november

These are Rossella, Alex and Cristina, at Cristina's

Paul arrived in Milan, after almost one year I had met Cristina. After walking 4km by feet because of the public transport's strike, I arrived at hers. Drinking good red wine, having a delicious buffet dinner, time has gone very quickly till Cristina told us: "Hey guys, it's almost midnight, I'm asking you to go home in a few moments".

PS Way back home: still by feet!


IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT BEING IN

Hyderabad, India

And I'll be there in February, 3 weeks at the Indian School of Business!

met on 7 november

These are Roby and Matteo, our little but beautiful home, Milano

I already knew Matteo, but in a different contest from the one I met him yesterday. Our first dialogue in this house was something so weird, that I can't even remember it.
But I remember when I came back home tonight at five that it has been really a pleasure finding them on the sofa.
Please look at Roby's curly hair, I did them with my magic hands and she's so beautiful and cool!

This is Stefano, Circolo Magnolia, Milano

Last Marc's friend I met was supposed to bring me home, but he couldn't find his car so we had to catch a bus. Stefano, another Marc's friend, found his car yesterday but I had to drive while he was shouting in the back of the car: "Biloute! Biloute!" or "Hey you drive it carefully, it's my dad's car" or "I'm from Holland, I live in Amsterdam" and he never never stopped talking.

IT HAS BEEN GREAT DANCING THANKS TO

Marc - NEMSI

met on 1st november

This is Marco, via Tosio, Brescia

He was just shouting nonsense words when I met him yesterday at midnight. A video shows him saying "Ciao MTV, ciao mamma I'm not drunk". But after these pics he made me promise to write that he is interested in women, neither in poles nor in bottles necks.


This is my personal friend Miss Grasshopper, Latte Più, Brescia















IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

His fantastic mum cooked for us:

Spending something like 10 hours a day there, you also need laughing. In my head only numbers, in my body only gingseng coffee.
Waiting for thursday.


IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

thanks to Angelo that made me know it cause it's light funny and wise

met on 27 october

This is Jack, viale D'Annunzio, Milano

On Monday night, studying at the library, you could receive this message from your housemates: "Tonight pizza + drink for free till 9".
You immediately have to tell it to max 3 persons, put your books in the bag, and go there by feet.
By feet because you are so hungry that you want to arrive there as soon as possible (also if it is 4 km far), but also because during your walk you can talk about what would you do if you've had win 100.000.000€.

met on 17 october

These are me, Silvia, Angelo, Rocco and Eleonora. Angelo and Rocco's house, Milano

"one two three, everybody like us, isa-ele, we put our hand up, you put your hand up" .. videomaking, with sunglasses, we will worry next week about our exams.



IT HAS BEEN REALLY WEIRD NOT BEING AT

met on 16 october

These are Baptiste, Federica and Rosita, Università Bocconi, Milano

Teamwork: project and launch of a ski-boot.
That was the yesterday's program for the design management class. Our group forgot to bring the pc to university.. So we had to use the professor's one.
Unfortunately Excel didn't work so well on his pc, so we had to finish the work home and send it not later than 8pm.
Unfortunately we listened nothing last lesson, so we didn't know what to do with this uncomprehensible Excel table.
Luckily we knew that finally we had to exceed a 1,37% benchmark value: Federica and I went home and tried to put numbers in that table, after 2 or more hours we reached a 1,29% benchmark. We mailed it to the professor, also if it was already 9pm.

IT HAS BEEN GREAT MEETING

Enzo Baglieri, Design Management teacher during four sessions, he kindly lent us his pc and risked heart attack when a girl tripped over the feeder.

met on 11 october

Diesel XXX party in Milano

We all love Obama.
What a successful t-shirt!




These are Marc, one of his girls (ahahaah) and a friend of him, Diesel XXX party, Milano

We were supposed to go home with Marc's friend. Unfortunately he couldn't remember were he left his car. After walking for half an hour we decided to leave him and wait for a taxi there between Milan and Segrate. No taxi. We walked, walked, walked and took a bus to the Dome. We walked again and finally arrived home.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT MEETING

And look at these fabolous t-shirts they created for the party!
